Will arrive Little Rock, Arkansas, Wed, June 2nd. Have booked a room at the Downtown Presidential Center Holiday Inn (I understand this is President Clinton's hotel. LOL). Will enjoy wearing some of my FReeper t-shirts through their lobby. We hope to get our pictures in front of the Clinton Presidential Library and perhaps do a little FReeping with the Hog Wild FReepers and then enjoy some southern hospitality Arkansas style at the Whole Hog Cafe. Will stay Wednesday and Thursday nights in Little Rock.

Arrive Houston, TX, Friday night, June 11th. We're booked at the Greenway Plaza Holiday Inn. Will enjoy a dinner and meeting with the Houston Area Texans on Saturday, the 12th of June.
After Houston, we hope to stay a couple nights at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio, visiting with the San Antonio area FReepers and hopefully meeting the Texas Termite, baby Logan and family. Then our home trip commences.
On the way home, we hope to stay a couple nights at the Holiday Inn in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
We'll have dinner in Phoenix as we pass through and will possibly stay overnight there.
The last overnight stay on our trip will be at Lake Havasu City, AZ, where we'll meet with the local FReepers and tour the world headquarters of VetsCoR (Veterans for Constitutional Restoration).
Looking forward to a great trip and seeing old friends again and meeting lots of new ones!
Have fun, wish that I could go.
You are putting some serious milage on the freepermobile, during the first couple of days.
Stay safe on the road. Does the Freepermobile have direct feed to a doplar radar site to pinpoint tornados?
Welcome to Houston bump
Sure glad you guys are on the road. Will put pins in a large map I just bought.
While I'm not certain which Robinsons are going on this trip, God Speed.
Keep us posted Jim.
Heading up to OK on the fifth. I'll miss you there. Probably going to stay about a week, so I'll miss you down here on the 9th. Shoot.
Please hug the Termite for me!!!
Sheila and Chris will be with me. And we are using the Priority Club. We've had pretty good luck finding handicapped rooms and dataports, etc. with Holiday Inn. We've stayed with them whenever we could for the last several of our trips. Will try to post something each morning and evening during our trip.
Ooops. Just missed.
Happy Trails, Jim. Hope to catch ya's in Las Cruces.
Jim, Sheila, and Chris, have a wonderful and safe trip! Although we will miss you here, I know how great it will be for you all to meet so many good freepers all over the country! Stay safe! Think of me as you freep with the Colorado freepers!!! I am jealous you know! :-)
Good luck on your trip Jim and family. I'm looking forward to seeing you all on your southeastern trip this fall...You did say this fall, didn't you?
Yes, I believe we'll be at the Hacienda Restaurant just next door to the Holiday Inn. Check with Ms. AntiFeminazi by freepmail for the details.
Great! See you there. Will post the time and place when we get closer.
Thanks. Hey, we've got a couple extra seats, pack up your bags and let's boogie.
January. We hope to go across the South and down into Florida and then back up the east coast to Washington, DC.
Oh I wish I could!
